RAMADAN: A MONTH OF DISCIPLINE

Ramadan: A Month of Discipline

The Arabic word for fasting is ‘sawm’. The literal meaning of sawm is to abstain. During the month of fasting, a person refrains from many things. Thus Ramadan is a month of leading a controlled life. Keeping oneself in discipline is very important. Success is for one who knows the art of discipline. One who lacks discipline cannot achieve big success. The month of Ramadan is meant as training in discipline. Discipline is important both in worldly and religious aspects of life.

Do Not Despair

Despair is disapproved of in the Quran because one who despairs shows that he does not trust God. When God has declared that the universe is replete with His mercy, to become dejected would mean to have no hope from God. Moreover, God’s mercies are not evident in the manner in which stones and rocks are visible. Often we seek a blessing in the present moment but God has kept it for the future, which leads to despair. We should know that God’s blessings and bounties sometimes come to us soon and at other times they come later on. It is also possible that we may not receive a blessing we desire in this world because it is meant to be enjoyed in the Hereafter. One who does not reflect on these issues would fall to despair, showing that he does not have trust in God.

GRATEFULNESS OF GOD

GRATEFULNESS OF GOD

“Presenting one’s gratitude to God is tawhid, while presenting it instead to a creature of God is shirk. During ancient times people attributed divinity to the sun, moon and other natural phenomena such as rain. This was because at that time they couldn’t explain these occurrences and held them in mysterious awe. Today after scientific advances, people rationally understand these natural phenomena. But in the present times the Creator has been separated from creation. People draw benefits from discoveries in nature but do not offer thanks to their Creator. Today people are living in a contradiction: they utilize the blessings of God but do not acknowledge God’s gifts to them. This contradiction in their lives is the source for the tension and stress we see in people today. “
